What is the Foundation?

If you have an idea for a project which will develop your skills and benefit others, the Leeds for Life Foundation could help with a cash grant of up to £500 to make it happen. With funding from the Alumni Footsteps Fund, the Foundation was established to help fund projects that reflect the enthusiasm, creativity and initiative of our students, both undergraduate and postgraduate. You might want to seek out new challenges, experience new environments and cultures, and make a positive difference to the lives of other people and the Leeds for Life Foundation can support you with this. In 2020-21 the Foundation would especially welcome applications from students initiating new projects or developing existing projects they set up.

Available funding
